Even at 81 years old, Ted Rowan still gets nervous before a track competition. "When you’re up to that line, waiting for that gun to go off, it’s almost like you’re throwing up. I think that’s probably why I do well. I get a pump of adrenalin."
Ted Rowan is coming off another record-breaking month on the track. He set national records for his age in the 50- and 60-metre hurdles. Not bad for a guy who feels more comfortable competing in field events.

We are Saskatoon's daily newspaper
Introduction

On Friday, October 17, 1902, G. Wesley Norman and his brother, Leonard, tugged at their Washington hand press to produce 1,000 copies of Saskatoon's newspaper, The Phoenix. The weekly was produced in a small frame building on 21st Street.

The paper was then bought and sold a couple of times and was reborn in 1907 as the Daily Phoenix. It was published three times a week until 1909 when it became a daily and was renamed the Saskatoon Capital in 1910.

In 1912 the paper was sold again to W. F. Herman and Talmage Lawson and its name was changed from the Capital to the Saskatoon Daily Star.

During the 1920's a series of sales and purchases between newspaper owners in Saskatoon and Regina left Saskatoon with two daily papers, Saskatoon Daily Star and The Daily Phoenix.

Then, on January 1st, 1928, the Sifton family, publishers of the Winnipeg Free Press bought and amalgamated the papers to form the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

The Siftons owned the paper until it was purchased by Hollinger Newspapers in 1996. Hollinger was purchased by CanWest Global Communications Corp. in 2000. The StarPhoenix is now a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
